"Recently I had my fifth ( they’re so addicting) photo shoot. I originally scheduled this for June to celebrate my 50th birthday but it turned into so much more. I never could have imagined how much this get together with my Blush Boudoir family would be needed. 

"The entire year was filled with heartache, illness, betrayal and depression which allowed me to forget who I was, loose my confidence , and my smile. 

"The day of my shoot when I walked up to that pretty pink door I was but a shell of myself… cue the lovely and talented Payton Payton who greeted me with such an infectious smile. We talked , joked and laughed the whole time she was doing my makeup. Then Tracy Pote arrived and joined in on the fun…. It was so much needed. When Payton gave me the mirror I about cried…. All I could say was “ there she is” . Payton you are truly an amazing makeup artist and such a beautiful soul. Then it was time to work and I do mean work… I was sore for days after lol 😂 

"Tracy and Payton , you both will never know how much that day meant to me or how you both saved me from myself. During that photo session I regained my confidence, remembered that I am a bad ass and to love myself. Most importantly, you gave me back the most beautiful thing a woman can wear…., my smile. 

"Here are a few of my favorites that we captured together. Love my Blush family 💗" - Ms. T
